I'm running the just released update v1.00.11158.1 (Build 1115.8). It's the second occurence of this problem that I noticed when playing Northern Inferno scenarios in CMO: after starting CMO and loading a saved game from Northern Inferno, the "Side briefing" document fails to load with a generic error about URI (the game tries to open an invalid filepath - is my guess) - see the screenshot. The only workaround for this that I found is to right-click in the briefing window, select Open, and find a briefing.html document manually - it doesn't however load images for it.

Side briefing works fine for newly started scenarios

Try saving into the exact folder where the scenariofiles are, that might fix it. This was a problem in cmano too.

Spot on! After moving my save file into the Northern Inferno directory, the Side briefing loads fine. Thank you!
That means the game looks for briefing in a folder relative to where the savefile was loaded from.

@apache85: apparently the problem is not new and I realize it may not have an easy fix. It would be nice if - at the very least (short term) - CMO:
- suggested the correct default save folder with "Save As" (I think in this particular case, even though I was playing a single scenario from the NI campaign, it suggested an upper-level folder where autosaves live).
- prevented saving in a wrong folder (be either locking "Save As" to the only correct folder, or showing a warning).

Long term it would be nice if Save worked with any folders. It would be nice to be able to keep CMO folder clean and tidy, with no .save files in it.
